DRIVING THE TRANSFORMATION

< back to previous page

“Identifying and exploiting trends, and at the same time establishing new standards too.”

Entrepreneurship is in our blood. We know the business, so it’s only natural that this is one of our main focal areas. We look to acquire strategic holdings and seek to make long-term investments. We focus primarily on interests in medium-sized enterprises. We have sufficient business experience in this area to strategically elevate companies to a higher level.

Sustainably grow companies.
When we invest in a business, we adopt the role of active partners. We work closely with the management team. We do not interfere with the day-to-day running of the business, but assist the management as “sparring partners” with important matters such as strategic direction, sales, controlling and financing. As an entrepreneur/investor, our purpose is to support the company in which we invest with its development on a long-term basis. We want to achieve a sustainable increase in value through growth and strategic improvements. As a family office, we are in a position to invest flexibly and over the long term. As a rule, we look for companies with a technological advantage, clearly defined core competencies, a convincing business model, strong growth potential and a realistic chance of becoming a market leader in their field. Our investments extend across a range of different sectors, including healthcare, technology, consumption and industry, as well as across the most economically important regions of the world. When it comes to our current direct and indirect holdings, we have specifically diversified our investment, taking smaller interests in several companies at home and abroad, and consciously leave the active management of the business to our partners. We support them with our business acumen in situations where they find themselves facing fundamental strategic challenges.
